This is why I started blogging

     Can you see that little purple Crape Myrtle in the foreground? This is the view that I have when I sit on the porch and look across the street. The house is the Burt Stark Mansion here in town. It was the site of the last Confederate Cabinet Meeting between President Jefferson Davis and all his men.
     The whole reason I started blogging was because in all my searching for ways to propogate crape myrtle clippings from this tree I discovered Tom at Seventh Street Cottage and then on to his favorites and commentors.
     So, five years later I have met so many nice people and I wonder what their weather is like in other parts of the world, and what they have been up to in their gardens. But, I still have not ever had one bit of success with even one clipping from that beautiful little old timey crape myrtle.
     Makes me sad.
